Amazing day!




Yesterday a damselfly landed on my hand! I spent five minutes or so walking around with it, it was such an awesome feeling. The tiny creature was so slender yet strong, delicate but tough at the same time, the silence it moved with as it performed acrobatics that would put anything made by a human to utter shame.


Here she is, since she was just passing through I didn't name her!

I didn't get to spend much time with her because I had a walk to take, but once I got back home I read about them some more in a book about insects I have (I've been an aspiring entomologist my whole life) and was enraptured by them all over again, the astounding power in it's wings, so pale and transparent, the design of its head and mouthparts, the way its legs were when at rest and when moving. It's a hunter born, built and designed to capture it's prey with grim efficiency. The way the tail looked rigid but could bend gracefully to allow it to mate and lay eggs was another thing I could speak about for hours, but I have more adventures to go on, for now this post is concluded, stay cool my readers, may your own adventures be amazing!



One more shot, she was a real sport and loved the camera!

Todays IRL adventure was canceled due to car trouble :(

Last night I went and checked for creatures but there were snakes and my flashlight quit on me, a failed mission...

The dry stream bed was filled with crawfish, they were all looking a bit forlorn without water, but I think they'll be okay as there are other parts of the stream that have some water in them. The snakes looked non venomous but I couldn't be 100% sure, so I left them alone. It was neat to see them getting walked on and climbed over by the crayfish.

WELCOME!

I have severe Major Depressive Disorder, Psychosis and PTSD
I want to take a walk three times a day and see what happens, human interaction is becoming so rare it hurts.
I like insects and nature.
